Capitalization[edit]

  • Need to make capitalization consistent. Is it "Fresnel" or "fresnel"? Isopropyl 01:56, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Photograph- I recomend a change of both photographs. Photo #1 is not right side up and it is hard to tell what the luminaire looks like. Photo# 2 is hardly a good desciption of the use of fresnels in theatre and concert. I also recomend that it should be mentioned that fresnels are slowly making their way to a shelf in the museum of theatre technology. Automated wash lights and Source-Four type intruments are overtaking the fresnel with better efficiancy.

In my theatre we use Source 4's/Lekos above the FOH and fresnels above the stage, with scoops at the back.

Agreed: the picture should at the very least show the distinctive stepped lens. Bryson430 19:31, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

I'll be able to get one in about a month. KeepOnTruckin 19:56, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
